Hi Josh,
Thanks for the info. We've recovered the sansa firmware. We're trying
to figure how to patch the firmware with the 0.2 patch. With the new
patcher there's a .exe file. There's no .exe for the old bootloader.
We looked on the sansa drive, in the system folder, but can't find
where to put the .mi4 file.
What do we do with this 0.2 .mi4 file?
Thanks so much.
Rusty
